LÖGBERG-HEIMSKRINGLA, FIMMTUDAGINN 12. MARZ 1970 A Message From Direcrors of Lógberg-Heimskringla A year ago the fortunes of Logberg Heimskringla were at a low ebb and it appeared for a time that increased costs and declining revenue would force the newspaper out of existence. The price of newsprint, increased postage and higher printing costs all indicated a serious deficit position for the year 1969. As a matter of record, mention should be made that recurring deficits in previous years diminished the small capital reserve account to the point where suspension of publication seemed to be logical from a business point of view. The Directors gave these matters serious thought and consideration and they came to the conclusion that a defeat- ist attitude is not a characteristic of the Icelandic people. During the many years that these newspapers have been in existence they have served a most useful purpose as a me- dium of disseminating news and information of interest to people of Icelandic origin, be they resident in Manitoba, Brit- ish Columbia, U.S.A. or elsewhere. To the extent that news- papers mold public opinion, they have been instrumental in developing a deep and lasting appreciation of our Ice- landic culture and tradition. We who dwell in this Western Hemisphere are anxious to preserve our beautiful language and in so doing avail ourselves of the treasures to be found in Icelandic literature. Logberg-Heimskringla serves as a forum for the discussion oí local and national problems as well as keeping us in- formed of events of interest in Iceland and thus developing a bond of friendship and understanding with our homeland. Several articles emphasising these facts appeared in Logberg-Heimskringla in the spring and summer months of 1969 and a financial appeal went forth to the subscribers and friends of the newspaper. The response to our appeal was most gratifying, and fo'r the first time in many years we were able to present a balanced budget at the close of the fiscal year. Our financial position in 1970 remains unchanged insofar as estimated revenue and fixed expenses are concerned and we must again depend on your generosity and goodwill in subscribing to the Logberg-Heimskringla Support Fund. There appears in this issue a list of those persons who have donated monies in aid of this important cause. The Directors and management wish at this time to express sincere thanks for the splendid initial response to our appeal. We trust that during the remaining ten months of this year the campaign will gain impetus and result in a wide and active participation. Let us all join hands together and make the 1970 financial appeal an outstanding success. K. W. Johannson.
